Mediacorp and Netflix have signed a deal that will see more than 20 Singapore-made Chinese TV series available on the video-on-demand streaming service.
The agreement will kick in from early 2017 with the content accessible to Netflix subscribers around the world.
Mediacorp said it wants to “cultivate more discerning fans” from other parts of the globe.
It will include The Little Nyonya, The Golden Path and more recent dramas such as The Dream Job and The Truth Seekers.
Mediacorp chief content officer, Chee Kong Cheah, said: “We are delighted to have this opportunity to showcase our local dramas to a global audience on Netflix, and give them a taste of made-in-Singapore content.
“We hope to cultivate more discerning fans beyond our shores, who are looking for high-quality Asian content. Mediacorp produces some 1,600 hours of entertainment content in four languages a year. We’re excited about making more of this available to a wider audience on Netflix.”
Netflix Asia vice president, Jessica Lee, said in a statement: “Netflix’s content library is growing every day and we are excited to be adding homegrown dramas by Mediacorp to the service.
“These popular local shows will now find new audiences all over the world, truly making Netflix a service that has something for everyone.”
